AF to order 737MAX??

Hi guys
I have been hearing for a few days that AF will replace its A320s with 737MAXs.
Is there a chance that this rumour is true?

I think they will order 737MAXs for both Transavia and KLM.

I would love to see the 737MAX in AF colours I must say

The 737MAX seems very likely for Transavia but regarding KLM I'm unsure.

I'm not a big fan of the narrow 737 vs the larger A320 family.

I've flown a couple of MAX and a couple A320neo recently and I think I prefer the MAX. But regardless of what KLM choose it will be better than the crappy 18-year old -800 they still have around. I only seem to get those lately, and it is such a huge improvement to fly a brand new MAX.

Not sure you would say that in an American Airline 737MAX

Although a bit narrower (and I canít see the difference), the 737 with the BSI is nicer than the A320.

Or the AC ones that fly stuff like YUL-BOD. Wonder where the ex-AC COO that came up with this is now?

Whereas the MAX looks better, the NEO is quieter and more comfortable.
